Color Throwdown #153

Hi there! Another Wednesday brings us around to another Color Throwdown challenge! Broni is our hostess this week with a cool, Summer color combo that I think everyone will LOVE!

When I saw these colors, my mind immediately went to this old designer paper from Stampin' Up! that I had in my stash. The background on it may not exactly be Crumb Cake, but it's still a nice Krafty color that fits with the challenge, I think!

I decided to color up Izzie has Balloons from Stamping Bella for today's challenge. She is colored with Copics on Bella's Bestest White cardstock, then cut out with a Labels 1 Nestabilities. I added some sponging around the edges, and a little glitter for sparkle. The card is finished off with some perfectly-matched seam binding (thanks Bar!) and a tag/button/string combo. The finished size of this card is 4 1/4" square, so even though the balloons stick up over the top of the card, this'll still fit perfectly in an A2 envelope!

Stop and see what my Throwdown sisters have for you today!

Keva Brown (joining us for one more week to help provide inspiration!)

Don't forget, there's still time if you want to join us for the Bellarific Friday challenge this week! Our theme is Heavy Metal! So just create anything with metal... hardware, brads, eyelets, metallic inks, shimmer sprays.... go for it! Email your creation to Da' Bella before Thursday evening to be included in the Bella line-up and be in the running to win some Bella Bucks!

Thanks for stopping by today!
